For Improving Professionalism - A Quick Fix
ARMY WAR COLLEGE CARLISLE BARRACKS PA
Pagination or Media Count:
A quality all volunteer Army must consist of troop units commanded and staffed by professionals, officers expert in their business. The essay inquires whether officers, during their mid-career years, spend enough time with troops to become fully qualified. The study sample consists of a group of Infantry officers considered for promotion to colonel in 1971. It is considered that modified assignment policy is the key to rapid amelioration of professionalism problems. A recommendation is made to change assignment stabilization policy now, and to give highest priority to troop duty.
